Archivas, Inc. announced three important advances in its Archivas Cluster (ArC) software, including integrated search and indexing capability, an increase in availability, as well as significant performance enhancements. ArC also has the ability to not only present a standard file system interface to applications, but also to store files in XML and HTML so applications are not permanently tied to the archive and as the application environment may change over time, files in ArC will always be accessible to users. ArC is generally available.
